Last week Marshall Aerospace gave a detailed presentation to St Ives councillors, prompting the council to again stress the importance of the firm to the Wyton site.
Town Mayor, Councillor Doug Dew, said: "The RAF Wyton site is one of significant importance to the economic and social life of Huntingdonshire.
